"We will baptize or confirm youth on May 23, which is Pentecost Sunday. That makes May an ideal time to preach about baptism. Every Christian should understand the basics about baptism. Beyond that, however, baptism should give you a powerful assurance of God’s love. When depression threatened to sink Martin Luther into despair, he would remind himself, 'I am baptized.' His baptism became a lifeline to sanity. 

 

Baptism is at once both a human and a divine action. We do something. God does something. On May 2, I will cover the basics. May 9 is Mother’s Day. I will be away most of the previous week, so Jason Pridmore will preach that Sunday. (Pastor Brad will preach when I am away in June.) 

 

On May 16, I will explain why we baptize infants. May 23 is Pentecost. We expect baptisms and confirmations, so I will preach on the commitment required to follow Jesus. Baptism is many things. One of them is our oath of loyalty to him. We wrap up the month with a sermon about how baptism unites us, even though Christians argue about it. 

 

Baptism is a beautiful, powerful gift God has given us. We honor him when we understand and practice it rightly." - Rev. Dr. David C. Mauldin
